Join Me in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
As you may know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019. Now after 14 months of treatments with everything modern medicine has to offer, I can now say I am done with my treatments. Looking back at the last year and half, I honestly don't know how I managed as well as I did except for the love and support I received from family, friends, and co-workers. With love and support comes hope and with hope, great things and miracles are possible.
But this fight is not over. For women living with a cancer diagnosis, even after the treatments are over and you get that clean bill of health the 1st year, then 2nd, etc..., the risk of recurrence never leaves you. And sadly even if you are diligent with screening every year like I was, it can still surprise you by the time you catch it (yes btw I caught it, not my Dr or my mammogram).
I am so grateful for the treatment options available to me but had it been 15 years sooner it would have been a very different story and I believe it could and should be much better 5/10/15 years from now. Trust me, as effective as they may be, Chemo/Surgery/Radiation was no picnic. Among my many chemo buddies, we all now live with various side effects - unwanted souvenirs from our journey. And the fact that women in this country live with 1 in 8 odds of getting this disease (worse if you live in Orange County btw) is unacceptable!
Susan G. Komen is the world's largest and most impactful breast cancer organization and they support the research necessary to explore better treatment options, better/earlier screening, and education on risk factors and prevention.
Please help Susan G. Komen save lives and end breast cancer forever. Our daughters, mothers, grandmothers, wives, aunts, and nieces should not have to live with 1 in 8 odds.
